How does a web server handle a lost connection, for example the client sends a request and due to some problem got disconnected from the server before the latter could reply with a response, what does a typical web server do in these kind of scenarios

Browsers make requests. Web servers reply to requests. They neither know nor care what happens once that reply has been sent. Think of it like the UDP protocol.

It doesn't do anything. What's it supposed to do? The connection is gone.
